Video of the Round Table on Mental Health held on July 6th

We are back with a 5th roundtable. For the month of July, we have
chosen the theme of mental health. For the first time, this roundtable
was in English in collaboration with The Social Eyes and Reflet de Société

For the host, Colin McGregor, mental health is a subject close to his heart.
Last fall he wrote about the mental health of the Anglophones of the
Eastern Townships. This roundtable was held on Wednesday the 6th of
July at 2 pm on Zoom. For this roundtable, Colin invited two guest
psychologists to contribute to our understanding of mental health.
